    Current British Army issue MTP one-piece overall, used for AFV crew training. Size is 190/96 - so an L-to-XL. Condition is very good indeed. As far as I can see it's complete and intact. Usually when these turn up they're trashed - this one really isn't. Ideal for summer game play, nicely ventilated, easy to get into and out of. Would make a great base for a ghillie suit. Paypal fine - buyer covers fees. Postage extra.


  2. No sweat at all @Hef Legend - thanks. Like I keep saying really not a complaint! I was happy with the items and the service I got from you guys. Wasn't aware of the changes you've made as I'm not on FB.
  3. Maybe a bit peripheral, but might be of interest: In that middle bit of Lidl where they stick all the weird random stuff that doesn't 'fit' anywhere else, I found yesterday 500ml rattle cans of what they call 'satin matte' or 'chalkboard' spray paint at £4.99 a pop. Pretty reasonable when you consider, for example, Humbrol acrylic spray costs more than that for half as much paint. Just how 'matt' these are I can't say - but it certainly isn't gloss paint! Various colours available; probably of most interest to folk on here is the olive green. Though looks more like a mid camouflage green rather than olive (which I'd say should properly be more on the brown side of green) to me. Anyway, might come in handy for any camo paint projects that people have got on the go - just thought I'd flag it.
  4. Understand chaps, thanks - and really not a complaint. I was happy with the experience. Only mention the lack of comms post-purchase because pre-purchase they answered questions promptly and in a friendly manner. So it just seemed odd, in comparison. As I said, I'd gladly use them again - no problem.
  5. Made a first-time purchase from these guys recently. My experience was positive - had what I needed, prices reasonable, sent fast, friendly and approachable attitude. BUT... Strangely silent when it came to aftercare enquiries. Emailed them a couple of times with a bucking question; no response at all. Wonder if they thought I was complaining (I wasn't). Odd switch around from very helpful, pre-purchase, to completely missing post-purchase. Slightly disappointing when it all started so well, but a fairly minor thing on balance - I'd certainly use them again, and you could do a lot worse out there.
  6. Oh my goodness - just placed my first 'face-to-face' (ie not through ebay) order with these guys and they are absolutely lovely to deal with! Friendly, professional, nothing too much trouble - good email and phone response to queries. Good stock of the bits I needed and prices perfectly reasonable. Postage costs also reasonable and delivery swift. What more can I say? Having dealt with some less-than-wonderful (in my experience) retailers (stand up Airsoft World) in the recent past, I find the attitude these guys have absolutely spot on. Exactly what I would expect from a caring, organised, responsible retailer. Use them so they don't disappear - we need more suppliers like these guys!
  7. Thanks gents @rocketdogbert @L3wisD RDB - I'll ping you a DM. Appreciate the help, very much.
  8. Silly question @L3wisD - called the effing thing every name under the sun, obvs! Doesn't appear to un-jam it though.
  9. @rocketdogbert I'm in Kent, mate.
  10. Thanks @rocketdogbert. Tried that. No joy. Maybe I should have another go. Kinda getting to the end of my tether with it, tbh. Quite an expensive paperweight!!
  11. Like it says in the topic, sadly. I quite like my WE Big Bird, but it recently developed a fault whereby I cock it, pull the trigger and it just blasts straight through a full mag in a split second. Not cool. OK, trigger sear probably. Great, I'll sort that. Except ... top slide is jammed on. Feels like it's catching at the rear, I would guess on the hammer. Anyone got any solutions to this? How the f... do I get the damn slide off? I haven't resorted to whacking the back of the slide with a big hammer. Yet... All assistance gratefully received.
  12. Thanks @Hunka1988 appreciate the input. I'd reached the same conclusion and, like you, sorted it with a file. Still a tight fit but saves having to shell out (even more) on a replacement bolt end cap. Spring guide stopper is, I believe, supposed to protrude at the bottom of the Action Army specialized trigger unit a bit. I just tapped it with a hammer and that drove it home the extra. It's tight though - not looking forward to having to remove it again when the day comes! Now just need to fettle the inside of the trigger guard to accommodate the protruding portion and all should (I hope) be well. Bit annoying that you spend £70 odd on a cylinder and then have to butcher it yourself. Still at a loss as to what those extra threaded 'pegs' are for and where to put them, though!
  13. Hoping wiser heads than mine can offer some advice on one or two (or three) issues I'm having fitting Action Army VSR specialized trigger unit and their Masamune (?) cylinder into a JG Bar 10. Problem No1 - I kept all the original bolt cocking parts (handle, end cap) from the Bar 10 to fit to the back of the Action Army cylinder. Nope! The back of the Action Army cylinder won't fit into the original Bar 10 end cap. More specifically it looks/feels like the 'male' stepped, flat section at the very end of the Action Army cylinder is too big to fit and lock with the 'female' flat section inside the rear of the bolt end cap, which is designed to take it, of course. Should I: 1) Take a file to the 'male' section of the Action Army cylinder bolt end and fettle it down until it fits into the original Bar 10 bolt end cap? 2) Buy a new VSR bolt end cap - and if so which? 3) Seek some other solution (all suggestions gratefully received)?! Problem No2 - With the Action Army specialized trigger unit fitted underneath the JG Bar 10 receiver I can't get the spring guide stopper to drop fully into the slot at the bottom of the cylinder, behind the spring guide. It'll go some way into the cylinder, but not the whole way, and then it'll stop, like it's stuck. What am I doing wrong that the spring guide stopper won't drop into place inside the cylinder slot?! Do I need to file down the cylinder end of the spring guide stopper for a better fit? Problem No3 - Not so much a problem as a puzzlement. In the little plastic bag that Action Army provides with the trigger unit, along with the two small mounting screws I have two small threaded 'pegs' with no actual screw or allen key heads on them. Of course, good old Action Army don't provide any instructions, but the spring guide stopper has two small holes in the end that look like they might take these 'pegs'. I've just no idea whether that's the case nor what their purpose is! What are these pegs for and what do I need to do with them? Thanks all for any help you can provide to any of these somewhat taxing conundrums.
  14. Ah, OK. Wouldn't seem to be a very bight thing for a business to do, though.
  15. 'Bogus' VCR defence? What might that be?!
